Baker’s dozen bonus: The ‘make your own’ bottle

If you have a gift recipient who’s just too hard to shop for, put the bottle choice in their hands. That is, buy them a winemaking kit. Minnesota-based Master Vintner offers different styles of kits , along with a range of winemaking supplies. Consider the Small Batch Wine Starter Kit ($80) to help someone get going — it will yield a one-gallon batch and prep the kit owner to make more in the future. The Fresh Harvest Fruit Winemaking Kit allows the kit owner to experiment with fruits ranging from apples to berries in place of the traditional grapes. Of course, you can always buy a kit for yourself — and then just give the gift of homemade wine instead.
